Heyoka didn’t come along on this all-hiking trip. My partner, Katharine and I set out from St. Bees on the west coast of England and hiked from the Irish Sea, across the Lake District, Moors and Yorkshire to Robin Hood’s Bay on the east coast of England at the Northern Sea. The Wainwright Walk is approximately 190 miles long and it took us about 17 days, hiking 8-15 miles a day. Here’s the photos and some videos of the trip upon our arrival in St. Bees and along the first day of hiking. The day before our walk, the weather was beautiful. 60s and 70s and sunny. On the start of our walk, it was in the 50s and rainy. We were waterlogged at the end of the day.

I can never tell if these are snap dragons or Foxglove.The whole route passes through farms. The public right of way has been established for hundreds of years, so farmers must maintain a way for travelers to pass through. Some passages are called kissing gates, some are just steps to climb over fences and some are big farm gates. St. Bees school. Sheep butt. This was the start of the real deal. It rained all day, but was still fun. Here’s Katharine enjoying the cold rain.
